A new self-adaptive fusion algorithm based on DST and DSmT is proposed. In the new algorithm, part of the conflicting information is normalized according to DST, while the other part is processed by DSmT. A controlling factor is used to control the quantity of information dealt by the two differentmethods adaptively, which is a new method avoiding setting for the threshold of conflict. The simulation results indicate that the new self-adaptive fusion algorithm based on DST and DSmT can deal... Topics: DST, DSmT, controlling factor

In this paper the critical issue of alarms’ classification and prioritization (in terms of degree of danger) is considered and realized on the base of Proportional Conflict Redistribution rule no.5, defined in Dezert-Smarandache Theory of plausible and paradoxical reasoning. Topics: Alarm classification, DSmT, DST, data fusion
We introduce the deconditioning problem and show that this problem admits a unique solution in the case of Bayesian prior; a solution which is not possible to obtain when classical Shafer and Bayes conditioning rules are used. Several simple examples are also presented to compare the results between this new Non-Bayesian conditioning and the classical one. Topics: Belief functions, conditioning, deconditioning, probability, DST
This paper deals with enriched qualitative belief functions for reasoning under uncertainty and for combining information expressed in natural language through linguistic labels. In this work, two possible enrichments (quantitative and/or qualitative) of linguistic labels are considered and operators (addition, multiplication, division, etc) for dealing with them are proposed and explained. Topics: Information fusion, Qualitative beliefs, DSmT, DST
In this paper, we present a non-supervised methodology for edge detection in color images based on belief functions and their combination. Our algorithm is based on the fusion of local edge detectors results expressed into basic belief assignments thanks to a flexible modeling, and the proportional conflict redistribution rule developed in DSmT framework. The application of this new belief-based edge detector is tested both on original (noise-free) Lena’s picture and on a modified image... Topics: Edge detection, image processing, DSmT, DST

In image classification, merging the opinion of several human experts is very important for different tasks such as the evaluation or the training. Indeed, the ground truth is rarely known before the scene imaging. We propose here different models in order to fuse the informations given by two or more experts. The considered unit for the classification, a small tile of the image, can contain one or more kind of the considered classes given by the experts. A second problem that we have to take...

To resolve the target classification problem under the condition of interference, the paper presents a target classification method based on the evidence-similarity. Because the results of Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) and Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT) are used in different conflict condition. In the low conflict situation, the classification by DST has good effect, but the classification by DSmT introduces the focal element, which increase the amount of computation greatly. In the high...

We challenge the validity of Dempster-Shafer Theory by using an emblematic example to show that DS rule produces counter-intuitive result. Further analysis reveals that the result comes from a understanding of evidence pooling which goes against the common expectation of this process. Although DS theory has attracted some interest of the scientific community working in information fusion and artificial intelligence, its validity to solve practical problems is problematic, because it is not...

Theories of evidence have already been applied more or less successfully in the fusion of remote sensing images. In the classical evidential reasoning, all the sources of evidence and their fusion results are related with the same invariable (static) frame of discernment. Nevertheless, there are possible change occurrences through multi-temporal remote sensing images, andthese changes need to be detected efficiently in some applications.

We measured the day-on-day impact of DST on the last Sunday in October 2009 on Nestoria.co.uk. Nestoria is a UK property search engine targeting residential users. Daylight Saving Time has no significant impact on the usage of web sites in terms of visits or performance of those visits. Topics: DST, time change, website usage, Nestoria, UK property search
In this paper, five conditions that have been proposed by Cobb and Shenoy are studied for nine different mappings from the Dempster-Shafer theory to the probability theory. After comparing these mappings, one of the considerable results indicates that none of the mappings satisfies the condition of invariance with respect to the marginalization process. In more details, the main reason for this defect is that the classic projection process in DST loses some probabilistic information. For...

Our new conditioning rule for belief revision is based on the proportional conflict redistribution rule of combination developed in DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache Theory) which abandons Bayes’ conditioning principle. Such Non-Bayesian conditioning allows to take into account judiciously the level of conflict between the prior belief available and the conditional evidence. We also introduce the deconditioning problem and show that this problem admits a unique solution in the case of Bayesian prior;...

Theories of evidence have already been applied more or less successfully in the fusion of remote sensing images. These attempts were based on the classical evidential reasoning which works under the condition that all sources of evidence and their fusion results are related to the same invariable (static) frame of discernment.

This paper presents several classes of fusion problems which cannot be directly attacked by the classical mathematical theory of evidence, also known as the Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) either because the Shafer’s model for the frame of discernment is impossible to obtain or just because the Dempster’s rule of combination fails to provide coherent results (or no result at all). We present and discuss the potentiality of the DSmT combined with its classical (or hybrid) rule of combination to...
